Subduction is a geological process that takes place at convergent boundaries of tectonic plateswhere one plate moves under another and is forced down into the mantle. Regions where this process occurs are known as subduction zones. Rates of subduction are typically in centimetres per year, with the average rate of convergence being approximately two to eight centimetres per year along most plate boundaries.
